Mobile Mammography 

Women are busy, and it can be hard to make time for an annual mammogram. And for some women, it's lack of insurance or transportation that prevents them from getting a screening. That's why Mercy Health's mobile mammography van is a life-saving resource for the Tri-State area.

The mobile mammography van makes stops in neighborhoods across Cincinnati, where people can conveniently walk in or make an appointment. The latest 3D mammography technology helps detect cancer in its earliest stages, when most treatable. Patients can receive their results within 45 minutes and appointments can even conveniently be scheduled at a Kroger health clinic. Navigation services help patients schedule follow-up testing if needed.

Mercy Health depends on support from donors like you for ongoing costs such as van and equipment maintenance and stipends for uninsured patients or those who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford it.

Ben Jackson Memorial Fund 

Mercy Health has the only adult bone marrow transplant program in Cincinnati. Patients need daily treatments for a number of weeks, but can never be further than 30 minutes from the hospital. Donations to the Ben Jackson Memorial Fund pay for hotel stays or gas cards so patients who struggle with the costs can get to their daily treatments without having to stay in the hospital.

The fund is named in honor of our 1,500th bone marrow transplant recipient. He and his wife were inspired to start the fund to ensure other patients don't have to worry about financial issues resources for.
